Well, readers… bad news is that it is about midnight on Tuesday and I’m just now writing my Motivational Monday post.
Good news is that if I keep on this way, I might make it back around to doing these on Mondays again!
So… on to this week’s quote… this time, we have a verse instead… actually, a chapter:
1 Corinthians 13:
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
I chose this passage because I am going through it with the 1 Corinthians 13 Challenge, which one of my best friends is orchestrating. I would encourage you to click the link and go to the page… take the Challinge (yes… that’s how you spell it…)… you won’t be sorry.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go get some of that lovely thing called sleep.
